"Marlan Cotner isn't fond of martinis to drink. To paint, she's done more for the martini than James Bond."

The “calling” of art has always been a part of who she is; even in grade school there was a need to get ideas down on paper – any paper – a grocery bag, an envelope, whatever is to hand. That need to create is still part of Marlan Cotner’s life, and sometimes the "call" is silly: olives leaping into a martini glasses, and sometimes the "call" is carefully rendered portraits. The oils Cotner creates exhibit great control and understanding, but more importantly perhaps, a terrific sense of humor. Come laugh and be wowed.

Marlan Winter Cotner is an award-winning artist from Holland, Michigan. She is represented in numerous solo shows in Michigan and Ohio. She exhibits in local and regional competitions.
